If you live alone and want the reassurance of someone checking in, Snug is for you. It's a free daily check-in service for people living alone.
Every morning, Snug checks in on you at your selected time. When you check in by pressing the big green check mark, you will receive a quote of the day. Your emergency contacts can optionally be notified, at your and their discretion, that you have successfully checked in.
If you don't check in by your selected daily time, a Snug dispatcher will call to check on you. If you still don't respond, your emergency contacts will be alerted and then emergency services will be called for a wellness check.
If you have a fall or an emergency, you can use Snug to call your personal dispatcher (on dispatch plan).
Snug is a way for anyone living alone to feel peace of mind. Think of it like a modern Medical Alert or Life Alert that is designed to be friendly, positive, and proactive.
Snug is popular with people who have medical concerns including diabetics, heart disease, stroke history, or epilepsy. A lot of people use it in combination with medication or pill reminders. It's also popular with seniors living independently and pet owners.
Snug has a free plan where emergency contacts are alerted if someone doesn't check in at their regular time.
There is also a dispatch plan, either $9.99/month or $99/year, where a personal dispatcher will call if someone misses their check in. If necessary, the dispatcher will coordinate a wellness check to the last known location.
You can call your dispatcher for help any time of the day if you have an emergency.

I'm getting another update to re-enable some payments for the Dispatch Plan. Thank you for the feedback!
Have a Snug Day!

Live alone? Use Snug!!
Living by yourself can be exciting, fun as well as work. You’re entirely responsible for your apartment, home, etc. It also means that you always need to be aware, safe and responsible. What if you happen to trip on a loose carpet when you first got up this morning and injured yourself or possibly worse - are unconscious. Who would know? With Snug you will check-in online on a daily basis at a pre-set time that you set. This takes literally seconds. And if you miss checking in at the time you have designated, a contact which you selected - such as a family member or close friend or a favorite neighbor - will receive an online notification from Snug that you have missed your check-in time. You control when you check-in and who you prefer Snug to contact should you miss your check-in time which you set for yourself. It’s simple to set up and definitely worth giving Snug a try.
Provides security without the cost
Living alone with a medical condition has been a concern for me as well as my family. I had the medical alert and then bought the Apple watch. The first had many false fall alerts and the second irritated my wrist as I have eczema. When I read about Snug I decided to give it a try and I love it. I enjoy not being tethered to anything and even if it is not alerting 24/7 my concern is if something happened overnight. As I said to my daughter who lives far away “I do not want to die in my sleep and smell up the house”. Checking in as I now do gives my daughter peace of mind. No text from Snug means I have checked in. Yes, relatives or friends could do the same but lives get busy. Snug is always here.
Great app - one major glitch
I’ve been using the free version, which has all the features I need at the moment. Thanks! I’m sure I will need the paid / premium version at some point :)
The one huge glitch is that the app apparently does not recognize a change in the time zone. I live on the West Coast but went to Hawai’i to house sit for two months. I verified within the app that the time zone was changed to HST and was no longer set on PST. I left the check-in time limit set at 10:00 every morning. However, the app began notifying me three hours too early at 4 a.m. that it was time to check in. At 6 a few mornings I got the warning message asking me if I was OK. And then one morning I slept late and it called my contacts at 7 a.m. It is three hours earlier in Hawai’i. The app does not recognize changes in the time zone - even when set to a new time zone. I did send screenshots of this issue to SNUG support but did not receive a resolution. Maybe in the next update?
